Homeless Health Network

Nurse and patient

Thanks to funding from The Monument Trust, the QNI is supporting community nurses to achieve outstanding levels of care for homeless people. With the right support to tackle entrenched medical, personal and social problems together it is possible for people experiencing homelessness to secure positive health – a foundation for rebuilding more secure and stable lives.  

The Homeless Health project is the national collaborative network for the community healthcare of:

  • People experiencing homelessness
  • Gypsy and Traveller Communities
  • Vulnerable Migrants
  • Sex Workers 

We provide nurses and  health leaders with news, research, workshops and e-learning tools. Please click on the left bar to find out more. 

As a valued member of our Homeless Health network, we would be very grateful if you can add your views to those who have already responded to the QNI National Benchmarking Survey for the Homeless Health Sector. 
Your opinions are important and will help shape a report on the state of the homeless health sector, due out later this year. By completing the survey, you are also helping to inform a National Inquiry into Hospital Discharge for Homeless People led by Healthwatch England.

'I do think the work that has been undertaken by the QNI is fantastic and I have shared some of the literature with the people involved in the [homeless health] strategy.'
